Review: Softsoap Bar Soap in Coconut Scrub

The Softsoap Bar Soap in Coconut Scrub came in the Influenster Holiday Vox Box as I previously mentioned. Due to numerous CVS sales including this product, I already had a decent sized stash of them but I figured I'd review them either way as they are inexpensive and readily available at least to those in the states.

As some of you may know, I am a bar soap kind of gal. I find it much easier to use and like that it doesn't require something like a loofah in the shower as I have limited space (also the bars are significantly smaller than body wash bottles). My favorite kind of soap is one with some scrubby bits in it as it can do double duty. Unfortunately, the Coconut Scrub soap doesn't have tons of scrubby bits so I wouldn't truly classify it as an exfoliating soap but it's still nice. It is very creamy and quite soft. This is kind of a double-edged sword, it lathers up beautifully, it's non-drying but due to the soft texture, it needs to be kept far from water so it doesn't disintegrate.
The coconut scent is very light and pleasant and it doesn't leave my skin dry or tight, nor feel like it is coated in a film after showering. All in all, it's a nice soap for a very reasonable price. You can get a pack of 4 soaps (each weighing 4oz - they didn't skimp) for just over $4 making them around $1 each.

Disclosure: This was received for review purposes and I have also bought quite a few myself.
